ToDo List

  • Quoting within Prolog expressions: Currently it is not possible to include double quotes within a <PRO ACTION=" ... ">. Conforming to the HTML 3.2 specification, we will in future support the standard HTML quoting conventions.
  • Multi User Environment: One idea to allow several users to build a common server is to let them edit content on a common fileserver. User-rights can be administrated using the standard managment of permissions. A common server can than be formed by joining the HTML-directories of all users together by symbolic links.
    However, this way only one global error list is generated while every user should get his own list.
    Thus, if we can import/export the "symbol lists" of other users, every user can compile his content individually.
  • Incremental Compilation/Continous Operation: This feature would allow the content to be "up to the minute".
  • Hyperlink Ambiguities: Implement a more elaborated strategy to resolve ambiguous hyperlinks.
  • Multiple Source/Destination Files: In particularlar within multi-user environments, it would be nice to have several source- and the corresponding destination directories.
  • Preprocessor Language: A more sophisticated PP-languge would be nice to perform various tasks:
    • Mark link endpoints instead of <A NAME="...">
    • Mark links instead of <A HREF="...">
    • Insert title and META-variables
    • Insert other Prolog-statements
  • Auto-Conversion: It would be nice to convert documents written in MS-Word into HTML automatically. Although suitable converters already exists, it is still impossible to convert embedded ".wmf" files without a running Windows-computer.
    If someone knows a solution to this, please send me a mail!
  • Distinction between META-markers and NAME-markers:
  • Environment Variables from OS environment: This would be nice to include arbitrary kinds of strings.
  • Preprocessor: Eliminate
  • MS-DOS/Windows: Adaptation, replacement of missing predicates.
  • Doc: Explain <PRO&>
  • Relative URLs: Insert relative URLs instead of absolute URLs where possible.
  • Relativizer: Create a program that takes a conventional site as input and returns a "relativized" site with filename as markers.
